Yusuf (our driver) and I met the Lynxx Travel Group at the Table Bay Hotel and from the minute that we met I knew this was going to be a fun fun fun tour. After becoming acquainted we set off on a Cape Peninsula tour

 

Our first stop was at the teabag factory in Hout Bay where Jilly (in picture) kept us entertained by telling us all about the tea bag factory and what products were made on the premises.

We travelled over Chapmans Peak and took in the wonderful scenery along the way.

After our visit to La Motte we moved onto Delaire/Graff winefarm where we enjoyed a great winetasting even though we drove the tasting room staff crazy while doing so. JJ

Touring with this group was nothing short of a fun a minute tour. The good times just did not stop. Everybody joined together to make the journey a great one. Yusuf and I had had an equal amount of fun with all as this group was so laid back and easy to travel with. Truly a journey not to be forgotten ands it represented so much happiness to all. In a nutshell I would do this journey once again in a heartbeat if it were offered to me once more.

Much of the success of this journey lay in Jacque's excellent organisation of the tour. Everything just worked and believe me it worked well. Thanks a mega-ton Jacque.

 

Brilliant - Brilliant - Brilliant.

A HUGE HUGE THANKS to all.
